    I have a 1980 Ford 1ton dump with a 7.3 diesel with I think around 15,000mi. on the engine. No more than 20,000 though.

    I just bought one of those fuso's so I'm looking to get rid of the ford. The truck is a great runner but it has some minor issues. Here they are:
    Hydro res has small leak near the top.
    Has brand new glow plugs but can't get power to them. (bad wire somewhere)
    Has block heater but does not get warm.(bad wire?)

    As far as the dump goes, It works great. If the hydro is down to the point of the leak, the bed gets about 3/4 of the way up before you can hear air enter the system. It still does go all the way up though. I use the air as a reminder to get more fluid.

    Offers? Let me know what you guys think.

    Oh by the way it is a 5 spd. Came with a 6.9 blown up diesel with 4 spd. Changed it out last year to the 7.3 5spd. Pictures coming as soon as I learn how to re-size
